Not only has Ike turned it around but they're entire secondary has had several good games. Keenan Lewis has been impressive and looks like a must sign after the season. Clark may be having his best season and Will Allen has surprised me more than any other DB. He seemed like an overpaid special teamer but he's stepped up nicely.

I saw some bizarre blogs/articles that far exceed anything I've seen in the Steeler loss threads. One expert thought Tomlin's job should be in jeopardy for this season's results.

Checks Yahoo FFL for the addition of Burress, sees he is now available, and just completed a waiver wire request to drop Brown and add Burress. No 1 in the league, here we come...

It's good that I held on to my No 1 waiver wire request.

Antonio Brown hasn't done anything in fantasy this year. He makes some clutch catches, but he has had an awfully quiet season. Believe it or not, he only has three touchdown receptions as a Steeler.

Injured without his QB that can throw a deep pass. For the league that I am in, his value is tied to how well the QB does, and as Shaf noted, he isn't doing anything this season. We'll see what Burress does.

Now if we can come up with a QB that float a pass to the back left corner if the endzone.

batch is quite competent at floating passes. him throwing a bomb would look like a tecmo super bowl drop back twenty yards and loft 70 yarder. whooooop. better hope for the double cut scene jump catch with that lob

nfl players all get long. it's the only sport where after the game, you have no idea who won because they're all just so excited to hang out with each other for a few minutes.

i think it's terrible, but it's not limited to brown or clark. it's just how it is in the nfl

Yeah, and NHL players get along too. You'd never see Crosby in the Flyers locker room after a loss.

Not to this degree. In football you hate the other teams fans but really not the whole other team. That's what happens when you play twice and maybe 3 times in a season but you don't have 6 regular season games and then another potential 7 in the playoffs. Every player can get hit in hockey, cheap shots are much easier to dish out and even if they are caught they can start right back up in 2:00 or less.

Which guard do you sit for him? Foster has been very steady in both run and pass situations. You almost never hear his name in a broadcast which means he isn't getting penalties and he isn't getting beat. Colon can be a standout both ways. He can be really good or really bad. Due to my extreme hatred of all things Willie Colon, I would sit him but that has a lot to do with the fact I think he is a pretty scummy guy. I would love for him to become a back-up so Pittsburgh can arrest him for all his unpaid parking tickets.

You can always move Foster to RT instead of Adams who has been brutal in pass blocking.

No I want to keep the Adams train rolling. He really hasn't done that poorly. He is the future at one of the tackles. Keep developing him
